Newly trialled native algae species provide real hope for the development of commercially viable fuels from algae, a University of Queensland scientist has found.
Homes being built in this Hudson Valley cul-de-sac in New Paltz, NY, offer prospective buyers wooded lots, pretty views and -- oh yes -- the promise of thumbing your nose at the power utility.
A new study from Western University shows the winds of change may be blowing when it comes to operating large-scale turbines in rural Ontario.
An hour or so ago I tore into Chrysler for being the luddite of the developing green technology in vehicles market.
In a virtually uninhabitable section of South Australia, a discovery has been made which could rock the world. Some are calling it the biggest discovery of oil in 50 years. Earlier this year, a company called Linc Energy announced that tests had re
If you get caught collecting photons of sunlight for your own use you can drop a fine not exceeding 30 million.
Researchers from the University of the West of England and the University of Bristol are seeking funding for their brainchild, a phone powered by urine.
It was hot and humid on Friday in New York. So hot, in fact, that New York City set an all-time record for energy usage. Yikes!
The development and testing of small scale electric vehicles for use in varied settings seems to be in full swing in Japan at the moment, courtesy of automakers Honda and Nissan.
Thin is in, from the peel-and-stick thin-film solar cells that Stanford University scientists described last year, to the super-thin, stackable solar cells MIT researchers recently conceptualized.
The mission was announced at the NASA Lunar Science Institute conference.
On this week’s episode, Jon rants about battery technology.

The Obama Administration has proposed new regulations for hydraulic fracturing on 756 million acres of public and tribal lands.
Solar panels are great, but they can be a bit... well, bland sometimes. We can't argue with their benefits, but unless you've a keen eye for photography, they aren't really works of art.
Their idea is state of the art: Ten Bielefeld students have set their sights on constructing a bio-battery.
This letter is in response to the piece on using photovoltaics to charge batteries by C.K.. I feel I should spend some time discussing some potential problems with charging Lithium Ion ("Li-ion") batteries the way C.K. proposes. However first a few g
The link between geothermal power production and earthquakes is one long since established, but new research is providing fresh insight into how Earth responds to this and other sorts of poking around underground that we do.
Two years after they embarked on a solar-cell printing initiative, Australian researchers are showing off cells the size of A3 paper – that’s about 16.5 by 11.7 inches – spit out by a $200,000 machine.
Research scientists at the University of Cambridge have developed electrical wiring from carbon nanotubes that is much longer than ever before. They developed a system where the wire is “spun” from a reactor that looks like cotton candy, allowing the
The bathroom is a great place to save water and try sustainable materials—just switching to low-flow showerheads and toilets can cut your water consumption by almost 50 percent. Here are a few more easy ways to make a more eco-friendly restroom.
